New Pathways' Sexual Violence Research
Our training department has a strong reputation of delivering sector leading training on sexual violence, trauma-informed practise, and safeguarding, delivering courses to hundreds of front-line workers, policy makers and members of the general public every year; and includes a thriving counselling college with a specialism in working with trauma.
We are an inclusive organisation that supports anyone affected by sexual violence, regardless of gender, age, background, disability and sexual orientation, and our client base reflects this. This gives us a comprehensive understanding of the needs and outcomes of different communities and individuals affected by sexual violence.
If you would like us to support your research, or commission us to carry out research, please email email@example.com to get in touch.
Some of the research we have been involved in:
Our aim was to understand the counselling experience by gathering the views of male and female adults who accessed counselling at New Pathways.
The overview of the research is documented here (click image below):
See a poster of the main findings here (click image below):
The VAWDASV (Violence Against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence) Research Network Wales was co-founded by Dr Sarah Wallace, Senior Research Fellow at the Welsh Institute for Health and Social Care (WIHSC), and Dr Emily Underwood-Lee, Associate Professor of Performance Studies at the George Ewart Evans Centre for Storytelling at USW.
It is supported by the Faculty of Creative Industries and PRIME Centre Wales, and is governed by a core group of academics, policy makers, and practitioners from the VAWDASV sector in Wales. It will also be supported by a dedicated member of staff from the Wales Violence Prevention Unit at Public Health Wales.
The aim of the network is to develop an inclusive research community for Wales that provides a safe, open forum to bring together those who are working towards an end to VAWDASV to set the future research agenda, foster collaboration and develop grant applications, undertake high quality research, and work towards the elimination of VAWDASV.
